Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez has come out to say that the Super League is not dead. He recently revealed that its members remain in the competition despite many signalling to move in recent days.
According to him, he’ll not go as far as explaining what a binding contract is, but he can guarantee that the clubs cannot leave.
He added that it is true that some of the clubs have bowed to pressure and voice out about their exit, but the league or one like it will still go on.
His words, “I’m not going to explain now what a binding contract is,”
“But the clubs cannot leave.”
“Some of them, because of pressure, have had to say that they’re leaving. But this project or one like it will go forward, and I hope it’s soon.”
“The Super League still exists, and the members are still in it. Now we have given ourselves some weeks to think, while we face the violence that some people, who don’t want to lose their privileges, have used to manipulate our project.”
“The Super League does not go against domestic competitions and its objective is to ensure that more money is available for all sections of football.”
“The concept is to generate more interest for the games. Nor do I think that the changes which UEFA have made are a real solution to the problem because what has been proposed isn’t even an improvement on the current model.”
“Also, we cannot wait until 2024. But in any case, we must have done something badly. We are going to try to turn this around and develop more ideas. Maybe the solution is for the top four teams in every league to play.”
“The truth is, no. Not the format, that nobody understands, not the time period, because by 2024… either we fix this before or all the clubs go bankrupt.”
